'Booming Bamboo' provides a comprehensive overview of the enormous potential of this sustainable resource. Not only for architecture and design but also for a multitude of other applications.
After covering the ''bamboo basics'' (growth, properties, cultural history, industrialisation), the first part of the book introduces the many benefits of bamboo as a fast-growing, renewable resource.
The second part presents the various ways in which bamboo can be transformed into many different exciting materials and fabrics.
